We artists are visual people and as such I think we need a visual tool, not
a text based one. Wiki style tools are text based, which great code but not
for artwork.
Something I've used is Adobe's Version Cue (
http://www.adobe.com/products/creativesuite/versioncue.html), it won't help
us as it only works with Adobe software eg Photoshop ($$$$$$), but I think
it's closer to what we need. Thats my idea of kind thing we need.

Thats my 2 cents.
